Working Bee Group

A successful FOP grant

A group from Sunshine Coast Bushwalkers, who are also CRC members, have been doing regular track maintenance on the Conondale Range Great Walk for several years. They were successful recently in receiving a Friends of Parks (FOP) grant to carry out major track works and repairs at Peters Creek on the Great Walk.

CRC also applied for the FOP State Government grant to produce a new information brochure on the Conondales. We were unsuccessful as Parks are gearing their information delivery to the internet. While this may work well in some places, there is no mobile or internet service available at Booloumba Creek or Charlie Moreland so getting the relevant information could prove rather difficult

Great Walks Maintenance Project

"Sunshine Coast Great Walks Track Maintenance Project"

The project was submitted by the Sunshine Coast Bushwalking Club and they received a “Friends of the Parks” Grant for $8650

The project aim is to continue to provide maintenance/reporting of the Hinterland and Conondale Range Great Walks.

To re-profile a section of track below Booloumba Falls and to repair a creek crossing between Sunday Creek Road and Peters Creek on the Conondale Range Great Walk. Also they plan to purchase tools and personal protective equipment for the Volunteers.

This project is expected to provide some 1000 volunteer hours.

The ongoing maintenance part of the project will start again on Tuesday 8 July. Re-profiling work is planned to start in late July and possibly work on a creek crossing off Sunday Creek Road.
